joining me now is the weather channel's paul goodlow. when are we expecting things to dry out? >> yeah, really not until next week in terms of seeing some drier weather. we're still watching the threat of heavy rain through this afternoon, this evening. as you mentioned, through this weekend as well. we have flood watches up for areas of oklahoma and missouri. oklahoma, trip it will-digit temperatures. north of that, we have some cooler air coming across the northern plains. stuck in the middle, areas of kansas, oklahoma, missouri, we have been in the battle zone here for showers and thunderstorms day after day after day. this will continue into the weekend. again, things will change, though, as we head towards next week. take a look at this. the past week, day after day, heavy rain battling across southern missouri here. now, a place really hard hit is waynesv waynesville, missouri. they've picked up 12 to 18 inches over the past six days. that's caused massive flooding in the area. what you don't want is more rain.
